The ongoing saga of Boogie’s food sensitivities

May 2, 2008 at 1:48 pm Leave a comment

OK, it’s not that big a saga but after Boogie got sick this week, I have been seeking out new information and getting sucked into a “dog food researching” frenzy. I am learning new things, picking up a zillion food recommendations and tips online, getting confused, ordering food samples, and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

I have been posting to the WOOF Forum and you can read the entire thread here: http://www.woofboard.com/forum/showthread.php?t=78184&page=4
(warning: it’s long so this link starts from page 4)

In summary, the raw diet didn’t work out. I don’t know if I did the switch too quickly (over 10 days), or if there was a problem with mixing regular dog food with the raw to introduce it to his diet, or if there was an allergen somewhere in the raw meat, or if the thawed-out chicken nuggets had gone bad in my fridge, or if the stuff was just too rich for Boogie’s tummy… I don’t know. In any case, I am not in any hurry to try again because I don’t want him to have to go through the nausea and vomiting again. Poor little bug. He was so miserable and sick.

After a few meals of white rice and boiled chicken, Boogie’s spirits have lifted again; he is back to his perky ball-fetching self, and now also back on Hills I/D..

Posting here videos of Boogie in Griffith Park. These were taken the day before he got sick.
